A British man was found stabbed to death with a spear in the Algarve after he invited another man to his apartment for sex.
The victim is believed to be an expat, aged 55, who was found in the early hours of Pereiro, Portugal.
A man, around the age of 20, was arrested.
Police arrested the younger man when he pulled him over in the victim’s car and discovered he didn’t have a license.
The victim had not been seen for several days until he was found this morning (5 April). He suffered stab wounds to his chest, stomach and ribs.
The authorities have said the man they have arrested has confessed to the killing, but police are still on the lookout for the murder weapon.
‘We don’t know for sure when the killing happened but we think it may have been Saturday,’ a spokesperson said. ‘He says he killed him during a row after some drinks.’
